Legendary Pakistan left-arm seamer Wasim Akram has insisted that fellow left-arm pace bowler Mohammad Amir is “still one of the best bowlers” the country has despite his struggles in ODI cricket.
Since the Champions Trophy final in June 2017, Amir has taken five wickets in 14 ODIs at a dismal average of 92.60.
Even though many former players and current captain Sarfraz Ahmed have expressed their concerns about Amir, Akram defended the 26-year-old, saying he will overcome the current rough patch he is going through.
“Someone tell me is there a good bowler who we haven’t seen yet? OK, Amir has taken four wickets in 14 matches, but he’s still one of the best bowlers we have. He can swing the ball, he’s just not getting wickets,” Akram was quoted as saying by PakPassion.
